A. 146. Cheap Gardening


(From Lohsa)
Translated by H. Melvin Symmank

A lad he entered into the forest,
"Fidlom, fidlom"(Strum, strum) into the forest. (*"Fidlom" is a Polish six stringed instrument)
Oh my heart, Oh my love,
Hey there, let your fidlom alone!

Into the forest, what does he want?
Strum, strum, what does he want?
Oh my heart, Oh my love,
Hey there, let your fidlom alone!

He will chop posts in the forest,
Strum, strum, chop posts.
Oh my heart, Oh my love,
Hey there, let your fidlom alone!

What will he do with the posts?
Strum, strum, what will he do?
Oh my heart, Oh my love,
Hey there, let your fidlom alone!

He will put a little garden in place,
Strum, strum, put in place.
Oh my heart, Oh my love,
Hey there, let your fidlom alone!

What will he plant in it?
Strum, strum, plant in it.
Oh my heart, Oh my love,
Hey there, let your fidlom alone!

Onions he will plant in it,
Strum, strum, plant in it.
Oh my heart, Oh my love,
Hey there, let your fidlom alone!

But then who will weed it,
Strum, strum, weed it?
Oh my heart, Oh my love,
Hey there, let your fidlom alone!

Old women (will) weed it,
Strum, strum, weed it.
Oh my heart, Oh my love,
Hey there, let your fidlom alone!

What does he give them for the day?
Strum, strum, for the day?
Oh my heart, Oh my love,
Hey there, let your fidlom alone!

One Dreier (1/2 cent) for the day,
Strum, strum, for the day.
Oh my heart, Oh my love,
Hey there, let your fidlom alone!
